Nurses Getting Sick and Tired

200024430-001

A new research study suggests their is a link between the health of your immune system and your circadian rhythm.

“These results suggest that immunity is stronger at night, consistent with the hypothesis that circadian proteins regulate restorative functions such as specific immune responses during sleep, when animals are not engaged in metabolically costly activities”

Hmm..

Maaayybe this could explain why I feel run-down and ‘sick-like’ after I work a couple night shifts?

Carpe Diem
